Escaped to a park for lunch today. There wasn't much to shoot except for these great trees with their shriveling orange berries and multi-colored leaves. The whole shoot turned out all impressionist/abstract - LOVE IT! Will probably get killed for having a lot of background bokeh, but there's a fair bit in the foreground, too.

Interesting play of colours. The bokeh is more significantly in the BG, but there is a little bit in the FG. Wierd bokeh shape! I wonder what sort of lens this is? Makes some nice textures.

This was the shot that I tried and tried to get, but completely failed at! Bokeh - both foreground and background - that suits the photo and adds impact and value.

Interesting shot, I'm having difficulty in deciding if the bokeh is in the front or background. Was this a zoom (while the shutter is open) shot?

very interesting composition - hard to tell how much of the blur is actually foregroun blur, though... 7

Looks more like background bokeh...could be wrong but can't really tell.

Normally, I wouldn't have scored this very high but it has such a neat effect. I really like it. 8

Much bokeh! I like the diagonal composition and colors. I kind of feel like there's motion everywhere but the main focal point, which may make me go look for the dramamine ;-)
